Default show and tell (the end)

ok, seeing as you seem to like my boxes (or are just gluttons for punishment), heres my third, although actually I'm showing them in the reverse order to when they were made.

This one is more of an "apprentice piece" to see if i could do different things.

Not sure if it works as a box as there are so many different things going on, but i put quite a lot of hours into it so it deserves to be seen at least once.

It will be a while before I make anything else now, home work is catching up on me. I have to do a lot of outdoors tiling so you can all relax.

Nice choice of woods and good workmanship Bob.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

you know what they say... if it aint broke dont fix it. i do find something pleasing about the shape.
I had four sections of the rosewood that I tried to butt joint into a bookended square for the lid, but I failed because i couldnt cut the four sides parallel enough for the glue to hold.

But when i start again i will try a 6 sided as i have the cutter for that, so far unused. Apparently it will also make a 12 sided, so i will have to try that as well.

Lots of "honey do's" at the moment, but she goes away for three weeks at easter, so that will be some "me" time.
